Yamaha PSR-E423


$400.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Big screen and well-laid out menus make it easier to use, especially for the unfamiliar. Boasts more voices and more flash memory than the Yamaha PSR-E413 for the same price.

The Cons:Transferring created music to a computer requires midi sequencer software which isn't included. Although it can run on battery power, the battery life is a joke. Although it has many sound options, many of them sound below par (especially the acoustic grand) for a keyboard of this price.

The Yamaha PSR-E423 is a syntherizer based portable keyboard, with many feature enhancements over its previous PSR-E413 model. It features 61 keyboard style keys, with Yamaha's Touch Response feature. This model features 2 real-time synthesizer control knobs and an improved arpeggio function.

    Does NOT have a standard MIDI port... Something that would be unusual even for a $100 keyboard.
